The GOST block cipher, defined in the standard GOST 28147-89, is a Russian government standard symmetric key block cipher. It can be used to encrypt the files in the Acronis Cyber Files File Repository on Russian localized servers.

For both of the below encryptions, your server must be using the Russian locale, otherwise the GOST option in Acronis Cyber Files will not show up. Pre-existing files will NOT be re-encrypted. All new files will be encrypted using the GOST encryption.
